A Fire Advisory has been declared in Foothills County.

The recent heat and dry spell have made for conditions conducive to wildfires.

It comes following wildfires in Central Alberta leading to the evacuation of hundreds of families, as well as an out-of-control prescribed burn in Banff.

While Fire Advisories aren't as serious as Fire Restrictions or Bans, locals are asked to use caution with burns.

Permits can also be canceled with little notice.

The advisory does not apply to Okotoks or High River.
